Indian Kinema Arts

Silent studio; Est: 1927 in Calcutta by exhibitor Ghanshyamdas Chokhani. First film was the influential Punarjanma (1927) scripted by Premankur Atorthy and shot by Nitin Bose, the début of a combination that later launched International Filmcraft with Chasher Meye (1931). With P.C. Barua’s Barua Pics and Dhiren Ganguly’s British Dominion Films, this studio is a direct predecessor of the New Theatres. Following the advent of New Theatres (1931), it was taken over by B.D. Rawal and converted into a studio facility for hire.
